Gugu Mpungose, a South Africa entrepreneur with a passion for media and storytelling that inspires  — Lionesses of Africa

What inspired you to start your company?

I was inspired by my own life experiences. Having gone through a great ordeal that sought to bury me under the ground, I managed to rise above the situation and became the best version of myself. Not defined by any situation, I questioned myself, how many women go through things such as rape, divorce, but never recover from those experiences. I then started looking for ways and platforms I could use to inspire other women who might be going through similar situations. I started hosting seminars for women which proved to be very powerful and healing. I then wrote a journal which aimed at inspiring women on their everyday life journey. Soon after that a magazine was born. I share stories of different people who have gone through things and came out stronger. 

Why should anyone use your service or product?

My life experiences put me in a position to understand and be sensitive to the needs of our audience.

Share a little about your entrepreneurial journey. And, do you come from an entrepreneurial background?

I don’t come from an entrepreneurial background, nor am I from the media space. I’m an IT Developer by profession and am now finding myself in media space. It has been very challenging. I did not have people who were open enough to help and mentor me. It’s been a lot of researching and learning on my own. I managed to define my scope without anyone’s influence.  I am still trying to find my footing and trying to set up the company as a full-blown media company.
